Not the craziest or even that unusual, just I personally never happen to catch passing trains when looking at street view.

Two different times are visible at that FOV, but pan around and you'll see at least five, all different. (And no, I'm not confusing the time of day with the game timer. I can tell the difference.)

This, of course, is just an artifact of how the photosphere is constructed—it's just a bunch of photos taken from a single point with a normal camera, oriented in such a way that a full 360° view of the place is captured. Then all of the photos are edited together to form a single, somewhat seamless image. Since a normal camera cannot take multiple pictures at the same time, all of the pictures are taken one after the other. Normally, this is not readily apparent, but since there was a timer prominently displayed in multiple areas within view of each other, it became obvious that the photos were captured some time apart.

(This sort of thing would be less obvious with a true Google Street View camera, which has multiple lenses pointing in multiple directions so all of the imagery needed can be captured simultaneously. Photospheres usually do not use such a camera.)

Buy Google stock so that your opinion is legally required to matter to them.


--- Quote --- As someone who loves to look around on Street View, this really bothers me. When might it be fixed?

Whenever Google feels like spending the money to fix it.

I checked in the affected areas. It has been fixed!

Here's one of the most incredible stitching errors I've ever seen: https://goo.gl/maps/Lji4B5uJ9jUdht2K8

I did a double and triple take before fully comprehending the error. Look at how realistic the duplicate CT 165 shield is, and note the "ghost" of the CT 138 shield just above it.

Yeah that is very seamless (especially since the trees above look fine).
